Provided that in computing the period of sixty days the time requisite for obtaining an authenticated copy of the order sought to be appealed from shall be excluded.

2. The memorandum of appeal shall be in the form of a petition. It shall state succinctly and clearly all the relevant facts leading up to the order complained of, and shall set forth in brief the objections to the decision appealed from and the grounds relied on in support of the appeal. The petition shall also state the date on which the order complained of was received by the appellant. The allegations of facts contained in the petition which cannot be verified by reference to the duly authenticated copies of the documents accompanying it shall be supported by affidavit of the appellant.

3. The petition shall be divided into paragraphs, numbered consecutively, each paragraph being confined to a distinct portion of the subject and shall be typed or photocopied or printed on one side of standard petition paper, demy-foolscape size, or on paper of equally superior quality.

4. The petition shall be made on a court-fee stamp of the value of five thousand rupees and shall be signed by the appellant, where the appellant appears in person, or by a duly authorised advocate-on-record on his behalf.

5. The petition of appeal shall be accompanied by-

(ii) at least seven spare sets of the petition and the papers filed with it.

6. The Registrar after satisfying himself that the petition of appeal is in order, shall endorse thereon the date of presentation, register the same as an appeal and send a copy thereof to the Secretary, Bar Council of India, for record.

7. On the registration of the petition of appeal, the Registrar shall, after notice to the appellant or his advocate-on-record, if any, post the appeal before the Court for preliminary hearing and for orders as to issue of notice. Upon such hearing, the Court, if satisfied that no prima facie case has been made out for its interference, may dismiss the appeal, and, if not so satisfied, direct that notice of the appeal be issued to the Advocate General of the State concerned or to the Attorney-General for India or to both and to the respondent.

8. Within ten days of the receipt by him of the intimation of admission of appeal under rule 7, the Secretary of the Bar Council of India shall transmit to the Court the entire original record relating to the case and such number of copies of the paper books prepared for the use of the Disciplinary Committee of the Bar Council of India as may be available.

set down for hearing ex-parte as against him on the expiry of the period of one month from the receipt by him of the notice of the admission of appeal.

After the receipt of the original record the Registrar shall with all convenient speed, in consultation with the parties to the appeal, select the documents necessary and relevant for determining the appeal and cause sufficient number of copies of the said record to be typed or photocopied or printed at the expense of the appellant.

13. Where the appellant fails to take any steps in the appeal within the time fixed for the purpose by these rules or unduly delays in bringing the appeal to a hearing, the Registrar shall call upon him to explain his default and if no Explanation is offered, or if the Explanation offered is, in the opinion of the Registrar, insufficient, the Registrar may after notifying all the parties who have entered appearance, place the appeal before the Court for orders on the default, and the Court may dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution, or give such directions in the matter as it may think fit and proper.

14. The costs of and incidental to all proceedings in the appeal shall be in the discretion of the Court.
